D'Orio: Monologue 3

In this verse is threatened the vengence of god on the wicked unbelievers, who lived under the means of grace, but who remained void of counsel, having no understanding in them. Under all the cultivations of heaven, they brought forth bitter and poisonous fruit. The expression I have chosen for my text, 'their foot shall slide in due time', seems to imply the following things, relating to the punishment and destruction to which these wicked unbelievers were exposed.

- They were always exposed to destruction; as one that stands or walks in slippery places is always exposed to fall. This is implied in the manner of their destruction coming upon them, being represented by their foot sliding. The same is expressed in psalm 23.18. "Surely thou didst set them in slippery places; thou castedst them down into destruction."

- Another thing implied is, that they are liable to fall of themselves, without being thrown down by the hand of another; as he that stands or walks on slippery ground needs nothing but his own weight to throw him down. That the reason why they have not fallen already and do not fall now is only that their appointed time has not come. For it is said, when that due time, or appointed time comes, their foot shall slide.
